Visit to Ferne Animal Sanctuary

On Sunday we dodged the rain to take Neil’s sister Carole to Ferne Animal Sanctuary, where both our pussycats came from. There were some lovely cats there and some adorable kittens that make  you want to take them home with you, but maybe 2 cats is enough!!

Waddling along the path were some happy ducks.

The Ducks have a big pond to swim in and several of them were just sitting about by the pond.

The pigs looked content, one of them was wallowing in the mud.

There is a lovely wooded area where chickens run free and another pond for the geese.

We stopped for an ice cream to finish the afternoon off and some chickens were pecking at our feet.

Visit to Ferne Animal Sanctuary

Yesterday being a lovely sunny day, and even better than that it was my birthday, we decided to go out to lunch and we visited the modern new cafe at Ferne Animal Sanctuary.  Had yummy Thai fish cakes and then went for a wonder all round the grounds and looked at all the rescued animals.

They have a number of free range hens of all different breeds.

There were also some newly rescued ex battery hens which were still in a sorry state.  At least now they can scratch around in the open and in time their feathers will grow back.

At Ferne there are a variety of animals and birds including some geese that have their own pond and enclosure…

There are rescued cows and an odd mix of old sheep….

And then there are horses, cats and dogs, bunnies, chipmunks, chinchillas, an avairy of birds and a few others too.  It’s a lovely spot with paths around the grounds and a great view…

Ferne animal sanctuary do a great job taking in unwanted pets, and rehoming where possible, but where it isn’t possible they provide a permanent home.  All this is done with donations from the public, there is no charge to enter.  So before we left we made a contribution to all their good work.

Then it was back home to look after our B&B guests.  visit us at www.lodgehousebandbsomerset.co.uk
